Segal’s watercolors are concerned with cyclical interdependence and the costs and limits of intimacy. Her loose wet-on-wet technique helps express an ambiguity of physical and emotional boundaries. The use of water-media on slick, nonporous surfaces leave the pigment to sit at the surface, impermanent and vulnerable.
